I cannot believe it is almost the middle of November, which is
National Diabetes Awareness Month. I crossed out national because there are other people around the world celebrating National Diabetes Awareness Month, not just people in America. I like to think of it as World Diabetes Month. We all know there are a lot of amazing initiatives going on both on and offline. Amy wrote a great post about them here, go check out and get involved.
A year ago, the DSMA Team and myself thought it would be a great idea to host a 15-24 hour twitter chat during WDD. A few things have changed since then; there are three new twitter chats and one on the horizon. It is amazing to see how much diabetes twitter chats as grown over the past 3-4 months. I emailed 15 friends to see if they were interested in hosting, and the response was phenomenal.
World Diabetes Twitter Chat:
Purpose: Global twitter chat for World Diabetes Day, and to raise diabetes awareness
